The amendment of the Saudi Council of Ministers decision regarding arrangements for children of a Saudi citizen from non-Saudis received great joy and welcome from many children of Saudi women, especially as the decision comes within the framework of establishing principles of justice and equality between women married to non-Saudis and Saudi women married to foreigners.
The amended decision stipulates that the children of a Saudi citizen who are non-Saudi residing in the Kingdom will be granted residency on the sponsorship of their mother, and she may request to bring them if they are outside the Kingdom to reside with her on her sponsorship and they do not have security notes.
The decision also included that the state bears the residency fees for children of Saudi citizenship, and allows her children to work for others in the private sector without transferring their sponsorship, and they are treated as Saudis in terms of study and treatment, and they are counted among the rates of Saudization in the private sector, according to Al-Riyadh newspaper.
The decision to obtain these benefits stipulated that the marriage took place with the approval of the competent authority, or that the marriage contract be notarized, and that their children had documents proving their identities.
The number of children of Saudi women married to non-Saudis is about one million and 500 thousand people, according to human rights and feminist organizations in Saudi Arabia.
According to official statistics, the number of Saudi women married to non-Saudis is 700,000, a number that seems large compared to the number of Saudis.
While the number of Saudi women marrying foreigners in 2018 was 517.
